We love a science center in our family and I will give this one credit for being particularly hands-on with their exhibits. There were lots of interactive exhibits, some technologies heavy, some not. My children, across the age span, and adults, were busy for around...More

A typical kids museum.. when we went there were 3 bus loads of elementary school students for summer camp which undoubtedly made the experience less enjoyable. There were a few exhibits for middle school age kids but overall it's for toddlers and primary school age.

A great place to take the kids! I would recommend for grade school kids for a great afternoon. There are many rooms and interactive activities to learn and enjoy!

We took our six year old niece for an afternoon of fun and learning. There are activities for all ages. I found myself making and launching paper rockets. I'd recommend the science center to children of all ages from 6 to 106.

We took our toddler grandsons. They had a wonderful time and were kept occupied for 4 hours without tears or losing focus. Perfect. Great value.
